Does anyone else feel the need for a new symbol to help distinguish between a > that signifies a true play-through transition and a > that just means the start of a new song without a pause?

Take GDTRFB > NFA: there are any number of versions in which the music just comes to a dead stop after the Bid You Goodnight theme, and then Weir starts up the NFA section again cold. It's not jarring or anything, because we're still hearing that rhythm internally, but its less satisfying than hearing them rev up the music again until they've returned us to NFA proper, a la DP2.

The promiscuous use of the > gets more egregious in later years, when it increasingly denotes medley-style connections rather than the sorts of seamless transitions we associate with, e.g., China Cat > Rider. Does anybody else know what the hell I'm talking about?

That has been discussed for years, but we stll use that old Deadbase system .
It would have been a good idea , but I think it is a little late now .

nope, you're out there (completely) on your own.

At least until 200-300 post that they agree with you.

Complete stop, no symbol

Seamless transition = ->
Dead stop, but still straight into next song = >

Bingo. You got it.

There's so much difference between a > from a second set jam in the fall of '72

than a > from a back half of a second set Vegas-style medley from '82
